of obamacare despite, despite the president's promises. according to news reports, the obama administration knew for at least three years that millions, millions of americans would not be taoeubl keep their health -- able to keep their health coverage. the president's press secretary basically admitted that americans would lose coverage too. this is the same president who said -- and i quote -- "if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. period. no one will take it away. no matter what." that is what the president said. this is one of the many reasons americans feel betrayed. one woman quoted in "the los angeles times" put it this way -- this is what she said -- "all we've been hearing for the last three years is if you like your policy, you can keep it. i'm infuriated because i was lied to." here's how one north carolinian put it to nbc news: "everybody's worried about whether the web site works or not, but that's fixable. that's just the tip of the iceberg. this stuff isn't fixable." that was after he lost a $228 a month plan and was faced with a choi

their policies canceled and that the obama administration has known about that for three years. according to nbc news up to 14 million people who buy their health insurance individually will receive a cancellation letter in the next year because the current policies don't meet the standards laid out by the new law. the white house told nbc that people whose policies will be canceled will in most cases be automatically shifted to plans with better protections. >>> and peter lee, the director of california's health insurance exchange, says he will not reveal how many californians have enrolled in the covered healthcare plan until mid-november. but he says once the figures are posted, they will be very detailed, broken down by city, age of enrollees and which kind of plans they've selected. >>> 7:10. the defensive coordinate for the oakland raiders has apologized for the obscene gesture he made on the field in sunday's game against the steelers. now, he made that gesture twice while protesting a referee's call in the third quarter of the raiders' 21-18 win over the steelers. there it is. he says he
at the presidential election -- the obama administration will be swept out of office. everyone will jump ship to the republican side to go back to before the affordable care act came through. -- this isn something that i cannot imagine anyone anticipated. . am retired when i retired, my employer sponsored plan -- my rates quintupled. what i wastimes now paying when i was working. i got married after i retired. i am not allowed to add my wife to my plan. low minimum qualification plans and she just got the cancellation notice. i went online to try to sign her up for insurance. before andnsurance it was more than $3000 per month. -- her premiums were only five dollars per week. beings be me -- that is terminated. they say she might qualify for medicaid coverage. is anyone aware of the fact that you have to forfeit your income to the government? you can all make you $3500 per month. host: let's jump in. guest: he is in a situation with retiree coverage. it sounds like your employer has increased the amount they were paying for that. it may not be unusual. many employers are required retirees to
for everyone, the best get to call your insurance companies to get information. >>> the obama administration is thinking seriously this morning about ending surveillance programs that eavesdrops from dozens of foreign leaders. the allies are said they're furious the national security agency monitored their phone calls. >> and intelligence sources tell the "los angeles times" that the white house did approve many of those operations. margaret brennan, good morning. >> did morning. they're upset by the volume of information collected by the nsa. they want to know what was done with it. they'll have meetings at the white house and the state department today. a lot of these questions will be one answered. president obama said there should be additional constraints on how the u.s. gathers intelligence. he told cable channel fusion. >> what we've over the past few year their compat capacities continue to develop and expand. that's why i'm issuing a national review to what they're able to do doesn't necessarily mean that they should be doing. >> reporter: the president would not
headache for the administration about obama care. jeff zeist said it would be running smoothley by the end of november but the next big meltdown is raising questions about that. another major stumble for the problem-riddled website healthcare.gov. >> it's better today than october 1st but it's a long way from perfect. >> reporter: visitors sunday couldn't apply for health care coverage. vendor for verizon, running the data services hub "experienced a failure in a networking component." that service connects healthcare.gov to the irs and other databases used to determine eligibility. the company says they're working to fix the problem. >> what you're seeing here is a gap in innovation and execution. >> reporter: healthcare.gov ridicule on late night tv. >> the site was only designed to handle six users aa time. >> reporter: "saturday night live" mocking kathleen sebelius. >> consider using our low res website, with simpler fonts and graphics. >> reporter: responsible for overseeing the website's implementation, and the pressure isn't letting up. >> she's already as of "saturday night live,"
the obama administration benghazi. nest about think about that for a moment. a supermajority of americans believe they have been misled by their government about what happened in benghazi. this is remarkable. the american people know how significant it is that ambassador stevens, the president's personal envoy to libya, was the first ambassador killed in the line of duty in four decades on september 11, 11 years to the day that nearly 3,000 people were killed by al aeda terrorists. the american people intuitively understand that a plot of this scale was not spontaneously inspired, as claimed by the administration's now infamous talking points. the american people also know that it's remarkable that no effort was made by washington to rescue the americans in benghazi or dispatch a hostage rescue team after the ambassador went missing that night. i think the american people also wonder just what the c.i.a. was doing in benghazi. was it involved in the collection and transfer of weapons to foreign countries, possibly to support the syrian rebels, and could some of those weapons have fallen i
in the obama administration were using to deal with this. they were so afraid that republicans were trying to defund it they created this broke system of trying to work this out and that that created the problem. >> is the sort of overall idea of sinking in that it doesn't work for all of these reasons? >> absolutely. and it's not just that the website, the manifestation, that's not the only problem. the problem is also getting people's eligibility information to them getting information to the insurance companies, and those are structural flaws predicted. >> and the consequences of that? >> people are not signing up which then leads of course if it continues into a month from now if this is still the problem then the consequences are policy consequences that get to the heart of whether this can survive as a piece of policy. >> that's my next question because the president is on the road promoting his health care agenda and everybody agrees this rollout has been a hot mess to put it very bluntly. how big of an effect is it having on the rest of his agenda? >> well,
house, no one in the obama administration has asked you not to release those numbers? >> we have made a group decision we were not releasing the numbers till mid november. >> you have no idea what those numbers are at this point? >> told you we would release the numbers in mid november. >> i'll take that as you don't want to answer the question. did you ever argue to secretary sebelius or anyone at the white house or anyone else that the exchanges would not be ready october 1st and that a delay in launching them would be warranted? >> i did not ever argue that we should delay the exchanges. what i did present to secretary in september is there were certain functions we should delay beyond october 1. i think those have been very much in the press that had to do with the automation of shop. it had to do the spanish language website. had to do with medicaid-mal transfers. >> before my time expires, i want to yield quickly. >> the law is if you are under the age of 26 and you are eligible to stay on your parents' plans, you cannot receive subsidies. >> you're right. >> there is nothing, n
news continues to come to light about the poor workmanship that went into the obama administration's website for obamacare. it's a problem, it's a mistake and americans are dealing with it all across america. the associated press reports, and i quote this, that folks in the administration saw red flags for months. and "the washington post" said that bureaucrats insisted on plowing ahead despite this known failure that would lie ahead. so, mr. speaker, we would ask a question. why are the american people going to be required to be in a health care system other than the one they chose? and the answer is because president obama and democrats passed a law years ago that is something that the american people do not want and were misled into. premiums are skyrocketing and most -- and some insurers are kicking people off their plan that they were on entirely. mr. speaker, republicans have a plan for the future, and it allows people to have their own doctor, their own insurance company and to make their own decisions. i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has
that keeps coming back to bite the obama administration in a big way. it's turned out not to be literally true, even if actual early it may be true. people do not read actuarial tables. host: here is chuck from florida. hi. caller: good morning. i would like to bring up social security. i see all the politicians are bringing it up. my question is, how do we get social security back into the trust fund? the government has borrowed almost $4 trillion out of social security. that is 1/4 of the debt. nobody brings this up. social security has been broke since they took it out of the trust fund, put it into the general fund, and mingle it in with the general tax dollars. host: any response? guest: the social security situation we will see coming up is not the one that is related to how the dollars in social security are allocated in the trust fund. if there will be any social security cutbacks, cost-of- living changes that come up in any of these budget talks, i am citing senator reid from last week. senate democrats say that is not going to happen. that is one of the cards in the deck of opti
developments. the end of november is the timeline the administration is now targeting to have the obama care website running smoothly. the latest report is that 700,000 applications have been filed but nobody will say how many have actually enrolled. secretary kathleen sebelius is to testify this week before congress as some republicans continue to call for her ouster. and even democrats now are urging change, ten senators calling for open enrollment to be extended beyond the current end date of march 2014. we wanted to help you understand some of the impact of the president's health care plan around the country. we're going to talk to the ceo of florida's largest health insurer cancelling 300,000 of its policies just this week. we're going to talk to him in just a moment. but first i want to turn to democratic senator steve beshear, republican governor john kasich in neighboring ohio. i wanted to take this out of washington because in kentucky you set up your own health care exchange. in ohio, governor kasich, you declined to do so until the fedego
tempore: the gentlelady is recognized. ms. foxx: thank you, mr. speaker. in 2009 president obama made a promise his administration had no intention of keeping. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. if you like your health plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. no one will take it away, no matter what, end quote. today's "washington post" bestows upon this moment of rhetorical splendor and others like it four by folk owes for the -- four pi folk yows -- pinocchios. it turns out the affordable care act is cutting health insurance plans. apparently the president's promise came with a large caveat. if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan if we deem it to be adequate. for millions, washington has deemed their personal health care plans deficient and come january, they won't have access to the plans they had before. americans deserve better. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlelady from arizona seek recognition? the gentlelady is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, mr.
